In this Group: Jeanne , Gneriba , Rokia , Mariam , Kadiatou , Gnineba , Fanta Kassim , Molobaly , Awa Tieble , Tiedjougou
The ten members of Danaya V Group are married women who average 34 years of age and 5 children each. They all live in polygamous families in Mana, a village in Ouelessebougou, 2nd administrative region of Mali.

They work with Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are seeking their seventh farming loan from the MFI.

They grow peanuts and millet, just like Gnineba, the second woman from the right in the sitting row in the photograph. With her loan, she intends to buy fertilizers and seeds, and pay plowing cost to maintain 0.5 hectare.

After the harvest, the production is sold at the market, to a clientele comprising resellers and consumers. Gnineba intends to turn an average profit of XOF 45'000 per planting.

This profit will enable her to repay the loan, and also help her husband cover daily expenses.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
